Classy & Fabulous

I'm really behind on sharing published cards and since it's Friends With Flair Friday with Unity Stamp Company, I thought I'd share a card that was published in Paper Crafts magazine's 365 Cards. I used Undeniably You for the dress and sentiment, which I stamped in two parts. The doilies on the side are from a retired kit of the month called Happily Ever After (which I'm selling for only $5). I inked up the edges of the base and added a green mat in between the stamped layer and the card base. I wrapped lace and a twine knot around the bodice and popped the dress on with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again tomorrow!

Love this card! What a great design, and between popping out the dress form and the trim around it, it really looks three dimensional. Love the colors too!

Hooray for pub cards -- I knew this one was yours in the mag without looking for the name...but that's always true for Em cards! I know you love this set, and I love what you've done with it here -- the "peplum" detail and "belt" are awesome!
